Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Ok, thanks, I will try some more this weekend.

It seems to respond fine and location looks rather accurate, also on GPS. In google drive I have a correct location so the position in the tablet seems fine.

However, on the map in opencpn using your .exe I am 400Km to the left off the actual position where I should be. Vertical position seems correct.

Regards,
Andrew

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

that's possible, except that I can't see how that could be happening in the code
I don't see this error on my tablet.
Andrew, can you tell me if the longitude is wrong both in the window of my program and opencpn? Is the wrong position on the other hemisphere?
Cheers

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Hi,
The position is correct in google and Bing maps.

Google says: 51.5495 5.47484

Geolocation says: 51.0550. 5.4748

I AM in Maaseik, Belgium now......

I dont have a clue, but It seems geolocation places an extra zero after the 51.......

Regards,
Andrew

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

So when:
N is 51,5 instead of 51,05 that should Be good.....
And E seems shifted 1 position to the right at .5 degree in stead of where i am at 5.xxx Also in google and cpn there is one digit less, maybe causing the shift.......difficult to explain but i hope you understand what i mean.
Regards,
Andrew

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Hi,

I have been playing around and activated the instrument panel. I see an empty e-position there. Did screenshot in this thread.

The first one, you probably recognize :-) Only the zero after 51. seems wrong.

The second one is from the instrument panel in opencpn. Maybe this is the explanation. The 0 position is in the UK, approx 400km from my house, so opencpn does not recognize the format off the e-position?

regards,
Andrew

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Has anyone used Xport to find the comport for the GPS on Win 8 tablet?

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Jack...
The problem with Win8 is that there are no more COM ports (true for the integrated GPS, not always true for the ones you connect externally) and what we were using before, like XPort, does not work anymore. That's why solutions like this are needed.

I realize you have BU353 (as I do) but this might help?

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Jackdale, Look at this post for a small program on opencpn software page that does builtin GPS ---> Opencp
Windows 8 Tablet with built-in GPS

Please post your experience on that thread. Thanks.

Re: Technical: windows 8 tablet location server

Andrew, sorry it took me so long to reply (new engine bed needed to be made, that was fun and getting ready to cross South China Sea once again...)
I still haven't found what could be the problem with your location, but I confess I didn't have much time to dig in.
However, I finally had the chance to test the program underway and it performs rather well, or I should say, the GNSS sensor works just fine. I still have my sextant close at hand, but seems like the sensor is doing a good job
I have fixed a silly error when calculating speed, see new download (r5).
Will keep your problem in mind, but I get a correct position, so it's difficult to track the error down. Perhaps others might have some input if they are seeing similar error.
Cheers
Petr
